Hello good day everyone,



So yesterday my friend downloaded some of dll files to run a game but after downloading all those dll files the game still wont run. She decided to uninstall the game and delete those dll files but all the dll files she downloaded are become invisible. That time she begun freaking out, she googled everything to remove those dll but she cant find any answer. She download the one of those .dll again, extracted it in her desktop and when she copy-pasted it on the location which the .dll located a message pop-up says if she will overwrite it. She sent me some screenshots provided so you guys can see it and hope it will fix her problem



This is where she copy-pasted the .dll but you clearly see its not there, I already arranged that by names. The dll name is zlib1.dll

And when she try copy-pasting the .dll with a new. Its clear that the dll is invisible I never encountered this problem.

The dll file is there alright its just that its display property is set to 'hidden' so you cant see it.

 

To show hidden files:

 

Go to the control panel and select 'Folder Options'

 

Click on the 'view' tab and check the radio button for 'show hidden files and folders'

 

Click OK and at least now you will be able to see it.

Hello,

 

The file might also be a hidden system file. When you inside Folder Options -> tick the option that says Hide Hidden System and Files. Make sure when your done you select this option back again.

Thanks for replying!

 

I did all what you guys said but still I cant see it. Is there any tool for removing it? Btw I'm using Windows7 64bit.
